Yarra Yering Agincourt Cabernet Malbec 2011

$109.00 $98.00

Aroma & Bouquet: The Agincourt block is most easterly part of the vineyard looking north/north-east so has one of the most sheltered sites. The nose is classic cabernet cassis with the addition of leafy herbal notes, the Malbec contributing boldness and plummy fruit. Palate: Agincourt consistently shows more upfront fruit, richness, herbaceaousness and generosity in youth than the Dry Red No. 1.

Winery Profile:
In 1973 Dr Bailey Carrodus released the first commercial vintage of wine from the Yarra Valley since 1923. The wines reflect this highly individual man, the site he chose so carefully, and the vagaries of the seasons in which they are produced. Today, Yarra Yering’s Winemaker Sarah Crowe is honouring the tradition that Dr Carrodus started in 1969. She is focusing on giving individual blocks and varieties the time and attention they deserve to continue making high quality wine.

Yarra Yering is one of the oldest and most beautiful vineyards in Victoria’s Yarra Valley with 28 hectares of vines located at the foot of the Warramate Hills. Established in 1969 by Dr Bailey Carrodus, the 1973 vintage saw production of the first vintage of Dry Red Wine No. 1 and Dry Red Wine No. 2. Yarra Yering quickly gained an international reputation for quality and individuality and paved the way for other Yarra Valley wineries.
